[plug] Perl regex question

Greetings to all,

I am trying to run a perl script which needs to apply a regex which will 
be effective over multiple lines.....

I would like to remove multiline javascript statements from within a web 
page which I want to archive.

Example :

<script language="javascript">
	I want to remove 
	the javascript lines as well as 
	the "script" tags which run over several lines

I have tried many different permutations, including the following :

$line =~ s/<script.*script>//smi ;

I read the Perl documentation which tells me to use the /s and /m 
switches - but I can't get the desired results.

The above example does not seem to do anything at all - it doesn't throw 
an error or give me any feed back.

What am I doing wrong ????

Any help appreciated.

Regards Arie
